Whilst on patrol duty in the Crawl area, North Shore Road, Hamilton Parish this morning (Tuesday, 27th June 2023), police officers encountered a male who appeared to have been experiencing a mental health episode, standing in the roadway.
Those initial officers remained inside the marked patrol car and slowly approached the subject, who jumped onto the bonnet of the vehicle, then climbed onto the roof.
Other officers attended the scene and assisted in bringing the male under control, before transporting him to the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute, using another police car.
The first vehicle was left with minor damage, (small dents), to the roof and bonnet.
There have been no reports of anyone being injured during this incident.
